  • Nimitz Academic Decathlon Qualifies for State MeetNimitz AcDec Team


    Over the weekend, Nimitz placed second at the Region IX Academic Decathlon Meet. There was certainly plenty of good news to go around for the Vikings.  Naturally, we would have liked to have won our 25th regional title in the past 29 years, but we continued the pattern of never finishing lower than 2nd place at the regional level.  The team also took second place in the Super Quiz Relay, answering 30 of 36 questions correctly.


    At the awards ceremony on Saturday night, the Vikings were awarded 43 medals.  Aron Mathai led the way with 10 medals.  Other top performances came from Ramon Reyes, who won 6 medals, Ryan Shelton, who won 7 medals, and Seireadan Zipper, who won 5 medals.  Carlos Estevis deserves special mention, as he won 6 medals in the most competitive GPA category and was the team’s top scoring student in the objective part of the competition.  Brianna Rios, Geoff Thomas, and Lilian Garcia each won 3 medals.


    Now, it is on to the State Meet for the 29th year in a row.  This year’s meet will be held right here in Irving, with the competition being held at both the Singley Academy and MacArthur High School on the last weekend in February.  We welcome your support as we embark on our quest to try to finish in the State’s top ten for the 20th consecutive year.
